about

Fusing electronic elements with rock and roll, 'We Sleep' aspires to create a story of darkness and hope. The world is enshrouded- shadows do exist- yet there is always light. It is chaos. Just as the iron claw of the silent stretches to grasp mankind, the will to live and be free drives man to resist eternally.

What happens in the darkness, while we sleep? We grow, but the world does not wait for us. 'We Sleep' is the first of a 3-album series that engages the journey to truth- the truth of what happens while 'We Sleep.'

Track Name: We Sleep
While we sleep
they watch our dreams
Making sure we fit in
with their schemes
And if they could
they'd shape
reality

Are you prepared for the day
when they take it all away?
They will bust in your front door
They will take you to the floor
they will take your soul and
then they still ask for more
Track Name: Dogmoon
It was six but it should have been seven
It was hell but it should have been heaven
and I was promised by a dog on a hill
that if I gave in I'd be fine.
It was said to be a stairway to heaven
But instead it led to seven-eleven
and I was promised by a moon in the sky
that if I gave in I'd be fine
It was dull and yet it was brilliant
it inspired a sense of fulfillment
and I was promised by the sun and the stars
that if I gave in I'd be fine

It was said to be pythagarasaurus
but it looked like all his theories were porous
and I was promised by the look in your eye
that if I gave in I would die

It's incredible to think for a change
decided we could trust the ones with the chains
around our necks
pulling us downwards
And how can you justify all the years
the blood sweat and tears
or the wars- all the wars and lives lost
to serve those up high
to serve those up high
Track Name: Silicon Chip
Now by now it should be obvious
but you never really caught onto this
So I guess you'll have to wait and see
while my plan unfolds
I never meant to expose
all the emptiness inside of you
those wide open holes!
But I guess you'll have to see
one way or another we're gonna fill that space

There's no guarantee
for you or for me

Now by now it should be obvious
but you never really caught onto this
So I guess you'll have to wait and see
while my plan unfolds
I never meant to be the one to expose
all the phoneys on the stage
and the lies that they've told
I only want you to stop buying in
so that maybe you can find
some peace of mind
-a second set of eyes
-a way to look inside
-a way to compromise
without losing sight

Now by now it should be obvious
that something's going on
The wicked things that men can do
and do all along
And what if those who can stop it all
decide not to act?
What if it all burns down
into a pile of ash?

There's no guarantee
for you or for me
When left on your own
Would you make it without a phone?
There's no guarantee
in the land of the free
When left on your own
Would you make it without a home
Track Name: Zombified
The time is ripe for rising of the dead to Life
You'll see the final judgment pace the world tonight
with desecration being your one and only chance
you will stare as if entranced
but understand...

They will seek and they will find
they will grasp and they will bind
they will make you into one of them
You can try to run and hide
escape nows the time
but you find it's a dead end

They are coming for our minds
they will force their way inside
They are coming for our minds
they will eat all that they find

You could see it's the truth
if you'd open up your eyes
You would find you've the strength
if you'd only look inside

So keep those weapons loaded high
let those bullets fucking fly
Let's take every-one back to hell
We gotta keep on our toes
get swept up and we'll be foes
and I'll tell you this- I'm saving shells

They are coming for our minds
they will force their way inside
They are coming for our minds
they will eat all that they find
